I’m not sure my French is good enough for this

Ever since I went to Japan I’ve been meaning to get Mylène Farmer’s new album (I heard it on one of the flights), but iTunes doesn’t offer it – at least not in the UK – so I headed over to Amazon France, thinking I’d just buy the CD.

But the mp3 version is less than half the price of the bonus CD (though I can’t figure out what’s ‘bonus’ about the Bonus version, except that it costs 3 Euros more), so I might as well go for that option.

Except that I can’t tell whether I can order a French album from over here in the UK. They do have a section about ‘Règlementations sur l’Export ; Utilisateur américain’ but surely they couldn’t tell that I’m a Yank? 🙂

Obviously the best thing to do is channel-hop and just buy the damn thing in a store. Much simpler. Non?
